Harry Styles' Film Debut, the New Spider-Man, and More Movies to Watch in July
- Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 6)
We got a sneak peek of Spider-Man teaming up with the Avengers in Captain America: Civil War last year—now it’s time to explore a new ship, specifically that of Peter Parker and his new father figure-slash-mentor, Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man. It’s something we’ve never seen onscreen before, not in the first two Spider-Man franchises. Peter Holland, the adorable actor who plays Peter Parker, says, “Peter’s trying to prove himself to Tony that he is old and wise enough to take on bigger tasks, but Tony keeps putting him down and telling him he isn’t ready yet. I think that’s what really drives Peter to possibly go down the wrong path, before he figures it out, and we see why Peter Parker is the most beloved and powerful superhero of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
- Bloody Crayons (July 12)
This isn't your regular feel-good teen movie: What is supposed to be a fun, out-of-town barkada trip takes a turn for the worse when they play the game Bloody Crayons. (This is why we should stick to board games, people!) It stars your favorite actors such as Sofia Andres, Diego Loyzaga, Janella Salvador, Elmo Magalona, Jane Oineza, Maris Racal, Yves Flores, and Ronnie Alonte.
- War for the Planet of the Apes (July 12)
How does a war last for years, decades, generations even? As we saw in the previous films in the Planet of the Apes series, the fighting begins with a lack of communication and compromise, and is sustained by betrayals, pride on both sides, and a kill-or-be-killed mentality. War for the Planet of the Apes finds Caesar, leader of the apes, on a quest to avenge their losses and win the war once and for all.
- Kita Kita (July 19)
They say love is blind, but we bet you haven’t seen a movie quite like this. Starring Alessandra de Rossi and Empoy (in his first leading role!), Kita Kita is a sweet, funny, unconventional love story with a twist too cute to spoil.
- Dunkirk (July 20)
If it's wrong to be excited for Dunkirk because of Harry Styles, then we don't want to be right. No but seriously, Hazza's film debut couldn’t be any more prestigious: The war drama is directed and written by no other than Christopher Nolan and stars members of the Nolan A-team such as Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy. We'll have to watch the movie to find out how big Harry's part is, but we do know that he booked the role because he's got skills. The director tells LA Times, "For the guys on the beach, we really wanted young unknowns. (Harry) is not that unknown, but he'd never done anything as an actor before. So he auditioned. I auditioned literally thousands of young men with different combinations of young men. And he had it."
- Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (July 21)
Cara Delevingne returns to the big screen in this sci-fi adventure based on the French comic series Valérian and Laureline. She plays Laureline, one-half of the space-and-time-traveling tandem who are tasked to find the dark force causing trouble in Alpha, the home of species from a thousand planets. Cara shares the screen with familiar faces such as Dane DeHaan, who plays her partner in (solving) crime, and Rihanna, a shape-shifting entertainer (but of course!).
- Cars 3 (July 26)
Can an old car be taught new tricks? That’s the dilemma of Lightning McQueen, who must keep up with a new generation of sleek, aerodynamic, record-setting racers. After being in the game for more than a decade, he must learn not to race faster, but race smarter.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
Here's a fan art that I made for Lee Joo Young of Itaewon class! I've been making digital illustration since last year and I'm happy that I was able to see my improvements. I'm also happy to see people's reactions and support for my craft even though all of it are made through my phone (adobe illustrator) only ????. You don't actually have to use expensive or complicated medium as long as you know how to be creative and like what you're doing, then you can do it. ????
